The Protected Disclosure Act 2012 encourages and assists people in making disclosures of improper conduct by public officers and public bodies. It provides protection to people who make disclosures in accordance with the Act and establishes a system for the matters disclosed to be investigated and rectifying action to be taken.
The Foundation does not tolerate improper conduct by employees, nor the taking of reprisals against those who come forward to disclose such conduct.
We are committed to ensuring transparency and accountability in administrative management practices and support the making of disclosures that reveal corrupt conduct, conduct involving substantial mismanagement of public resources, or conduct involving substantial risk to public health and safety or the environment.
The Foundation will take reasonable steps to protect people who make such disclosures from any detrimental action in reprisal for making the disclosure. We will also afford natural justice to the person who is the subject of the disclosure to the extent that is legally possible.
